Outlook 2002 Custom Security Settings

I have an email Automation program that was written in VB to process incoming Outlook mail and send out replies. We are using Exchange Server.  But when this tool is run on a computer using Outlook 2002,  it pops up with a message saying "A program is trying to access email addresses you have stored in Outlook. Do you want to allow this?"  for each email it processes.

 How do I disable this security setting?  I have read about Admpack.exe that you can download to change the settings,  but I get a little confused about which settings I have to change and how to deploy them to the 6 workstations using the program? The VB program uses the Outlook.Application Object. There are at least 3 different email accounts that this program has to run with.

Sorry dcordonier,

You're only choice is to use the admin pack.  I'm not sure what you're confused about...I looked at the readme.doc file and it's VERY straightforward in its explanations.

1. Follow the instructions on registering the trusted code
2. Create a public folder per the instructions
3. Open the outlook template on any computer using outlook.
4. Set your settings
5. Create a registry key for all clients to use the settings
6. distribute this to clients

Make sure you set any customn form settings you need to "automatically approve".

I mean really...its all about just reading their document step by step and following it.

Frankly if you're having a hard time...I really don't think you should be the one messing with these settings if you're working in an office environment, because this tool is assuming you're a knowledeable person who is allowing some functions and controls within Outlook to be trusted...when you actually could very well mess with settings you aren't familiar with and allow malicious code to be processed.
